  2. 2
    To unlock the phone, press down on the screen and swipe up
    .
    Once the phone has been unlocked we will see the home screen and at the bottom we will see 5 icons. We want to demonstrate how to use voice commands to set an alarm. Before we do that, it is important to note that if we want to be able to use this voice commands on every screen at all times, then we need to change the settings in the settings menu. This is because the default setting on the HTC One M8 is that we can only use the voice commands when we're in the Google Now application. This is not as practical or useful as being able to use them at all times. We can refer to another video on VisiHow to learn how to turn that option on.

    Say "OK Google" to open Google Now
    .
    There are two ways to do this. We can ask to set a particular time, such as an alarm for 6 AM tomorrow, or we can just ask for a time in the future, such as an alarm for two hours from now.
